"A must read for fans of Manda Scott and Kate Mosse” – Lisa Redmond, Madwoman in the Attic blog
INCEPTIO plunges you into a 21st century Roman world. Apart from kidnapping, heartache and a close encounter with Latin grammar, New Yorker Karen Brown must contend with a fascinating Praetorian elite forces officer. Oh, and a crazy killer pursuing her for a very personal reason.
Karen flees to her dead mother’s homeland, Roma Nova, the last remnant of the Roman Empire. Founded sixteen hundred years ago by Roman exiles and now ruled by women, it gives Karen safety and a ready-made family – but at a price.
In this adventure thriller set in an alternative timeline, Karen grows from a girl anybody might know into a strong female character not only intent on staying alive but also on finding out why the killer is hunting her.
A coming of age story, where an ordinary girl discovers there is a great deal more lying under her mundane existence, but also lethal danger. At what stage does she stop running from it?
"The Hunger Games meets Lindsey Davis’s Roman detective Falco meets JD Robb’s Eve Dallas.”

I highly recommend this book. It has a complex plot, it certainly isn’t your every day read. There is plenty of action all throughout the book. I had a hard time putting the book down once I started reading it.
I have a tendency to specialise and read heavy books and buy a few with new authors to expand my mind about what is out there beyond the common way,and I am pleased to say that I am glad that I savoured the time to read this first instalment to the series and am very pleased to have read it.Unlike other authors that tend to write in a softer vein,Ms Morton wrote this book more robustly and for myself,in a strong,independent manner that means that I have purchased the rest of the series expecting the same quality,I hope that the author will receive better recognition for this series and I hope others will discover her talents beyond the usual run of authors out there.
